It's safe to say that this was easily our favorite stop on this cruise. When researching options on things to do in our ports, what I kept seeing in Barbados was snorkeling with sea turtles. I noticed that the cruise line had a tour for this, but I also noticed that a lot of people in the Cruise Critic forums recommended other companies, and one of those companies is called … [Read more...]
Our entire family loves cruising. I love vacationing in warm places, but staying in one place for a whole week bores me. I don't want to sit on the same beach, day after day.

What I was most excited about on this cruise was that it had a lot of stops. The downside of that, though, is that you have to find things to do in all the ports. I do a lot of research before a trip to try to find quality things to do, and I struggled to find out what to do in St. Kitts. My husband, growing up, was a huge fan of Sid Meiers' Civilization, and had spent a lot of … [Read more...]
